1. i work in an area with a bunch of bars and they have set up a huge screen

outside . when i heard the cheering i thought it was for the introduction of the US team at first because it was so early.

3. They are looking good.

Hopefully Altidore getting hurt won't be a major thing. I have to admit, I'm pretty into the World Cup this time.

4. same here

this is the first world cup I've really gotten into.

USA looks competitive.

On edit:

They dont just look competitive...they look combatant...they are playing with a chip on their shoulder and that is a good thing.....they look like they are ready to play

5. It's been almost all Ghana ever since

The US are having a hard time holding on to possession. Ghana look pretty well-organised and are passing it around pretty well. They're just awful in the final third.

Anything can happen in the second half.

6. That was a hell of a start!

I've been biting my nails ever since. My favorite goal margin is to be up by 3 - one is never enough, 2 is OK, and more than 4 stops being fun.

These early injuries are scary.

12. Estados Unidos!!!

If you find soccer boring, get to know your brothers and sisters of the WORLD! Chances are they will make the game more interesting.

Being in So. Cally I watch the game in Espanol and listen at work with the Latinos.

I've been working at improving my Spanish language skills and this helps!

Estados Unidos! Numero Uno! Viva!!!

Hang in there, it's almost football season.

14. I've never understood why people think it's boring.

It's constant action, constant movement -- opening the defense, looking for the weak spots, drawing people one way so you can break the other; it's fantastic!! I didn't start watching much until '94, but I was immediately hooked for life.

18. I agree!

American football, a 1-hour game that lasts 3 hours, how boring is that!

19. "ESPN sports reporters"

They know as much about football as I do about making wicker baskets. In short, nothing at all. But they need to make it sound interesting.
